Antique Khorassan Persian Carpet, Persia, circa 1900 – Here is a a beautifully composed antique Oriental rug – an antique Khorassan carpet, woven in the height of that style by the great rug weavers of Persia. An elegant and elaborately composed design of highly detailed arabesque vines crolls and meticulously executed palmettes unfolds in a beautifully symmetrical manner throughout the soft brown field of this stately, impressive antique Khorassan Persian carpet. The myriad vines, palmettes, and vegetate elements that are found throughout the field are beautifully rendered in various earth tones which blend in seamlessly with the soft brown tone that characterizes the field. This creates a pleasant and unified quality that gives the entire carpet an air of uniformity and consistency. Meanwhile, the level of detail found throughout the borders of this antique Khorassan is much finer, with minuscule floral and vine scroll elements occupying practically every inch, giving the borders a deep and complex beauty that contrasts intriguingly with the more embellished and bold details of the field. Overall, this is a magnificently composed carpet, featuring an impeccable craftsmanship as well as a timeless and classical design.
